Friends of Saugatuck Dunes,


PUBLIC MEETING REGARDING SAUGATUCK DUNES STATE PARK

Please plan to attend a public meeting on the future of Saugatuck Dunes
State Park.  Saugatuck Dunes is one of the regionšs best-preserved natural
sand dune areas.  The Park has substantial acreage listed on the state of
Michiganšs Critical Dunes List and is visited primarily by persons seeking
to enjoy the famous Lake Michigan Dunes in something like their natural
state.

A proposal has been made to locate a water supply treatment plant on land
located inside the park, land which was originally intended for acquisition
by the state under the Parkšs Master Plan.  The proposal appears to have
been made in preference to addressing political barriers to sharing or
expansion of already-existing systems, or to location of new systems in
previously-developed areas.

Date:  Monday, November 12, 2001

Time:  6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Place:  Herrick Library, lower level
           Holland Michigan

Program:  David and Alison Swan will provide details of the proposal to
construct a water supply facility on land surrounded by Saugatuck Dunes
State Park,  

Sponsored by:  West Michigan Environmental Action Council
